You need such a small scale that the models are uninspiring and lacking in detail

POLL DESCRIPTION

Personal logo David Manley Supporting Member of TMP writes:

I'm an ardent naval war gamer, love it, always have, the vast majority of my wargaming covers naval subjects. But I'm aware that it is very much a niche area of wargaming. So, for those of you who are not naval gamers, why not? What is it that has stopped you getting into it?
